”Accordingly, a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform dispatched to search for and locate the convoy of vehicles. The ISR aircraft spotted vehicles at a location 24 Km SW of Gudumbali heading in a Northwards direction. Consequently, a helicopter gunship scrambled to attack the convoy.

As a matter of fact, the helicopter arrived the location and vectored to the position of the vehicles, which, at the time, were about midway between Nigerian Army (NA) locations at Metele and Arege. Following communications with ground troops, the BHT vehicles were positively identified, isolated and attacked by the helicopter gunship in successive strikes.

According to Daramola

Four vehicles immobilized and occupants neutralized.

”Furthermore, the ISR aircraft continued to track the remaining 5 vehicles, which initially dispersed but later regrouped and continued their retreat to Tumbun Rego. They subsequently attacked at their harbour location by the freshly rearmed helicopter gunship; with 3 direct hits recorded on the vehicles,” he said.

He said that a follow-up attack on the newly discovered insurgents’ logistics base in Tumbun Rego conducted by 2 Alpha Jet aircraft later in the morning of Saturday. ”The makeshift buildings and other facilities in the base were accordingly destroyed in the air strike.”
